Established by Prince Henry the Navigator as the town from which to discover the world, Sagres sits at the helm of Europe. Surrounded by sea on three sides and whipped by fierce winds, its cliffs and fortifications present an austere landscape to visitors.

Christopher Columbus studied at the School of Navigation, perhaps tossing stones into the sea, dreaming of foreign lands.

Not so intimidating for Sir Francis Drake, it seems, who in 1587 captured and wrecked the defences!

Fair skinned folk make a note of the cooler climate in Sagres than elsewhere in the Algarve.

Sagres can be found on our Region Map which is within The Algarve link.
